For those waiting on Ocean Born: I sincerely apologize for the long wait. I lost data before it was backed up, so I recently lost the next chapter that I was working on. I'm in the process of rewriting it now. Again, my sincere apologies to everyone.

I would just like to thank you for publishing a writing with the tag #ProjectEvangeline. I do recall you adding that tag a long time ago, but I don't think I've ever properly thanked you until now.
          
          We've just recently returned from a year long hiatus, and it warms my heart to see your work tagged, even after all this time.
          
          Thank you.

I want to apologize profusely to fans and followers who are STILL waiting for updates on Daughter of the Frost (and Diary of a Bipolar Artist).
          
          I know I try to be a positive, upbeat, and optimistic support for others, but I just don't know how to be right now. I've been struggling with depression for a long time, and on Wednesday in accumulated into suicidal thoughts and almost being pushed far enough to take my own life -- something I swore I would never do. I was turned away from my own significant other, who refuses to talk to me as he is angry about how severe my depression is -- I don't blame him, it's very overwhelming, but the sense of abandonment and betrayal is very real and hard to handle.
          
          My cousin had his Doctor Assisted Death (legal where I live) yesterday morning, and I can't even talk to my own partner about it because he doesn't want to be around me anymore.
          
          I don't want to alarm or worry people, especially those close to me, so I've been hiding it for a very long time. But I want to point out something important to others, especially those who tell me my self-help book supports them through their own depression and struggles: please don't suffer in silence, please don't isolate yourself, please don't be afraid to reach out. Some people won't handle it well, some people will turn you away, and that's unfortunate and can't be helped. But people who matter the most will stand by you, they will support you, they will help you find yourself again and weather the storm with you.
          
          Please don't ever give up. When you're suffering, reach out -- to me, to a help line, to a loved one, to a support group forum, anything. You owe it to yourself to give yourself the best chance of being happy.
